Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Bereishit (Genesis), Torah, VaYeshev

In this week’s parsha, we learn the story of Yosef and Potiphar’s wife, and the events leading up to Yoseph’s imprisonment. Just what happened between Yosef and Potiphar’s wife? Did Yosef desire her, and if so, did he actually give in to that temptation?
